If you've missed Comet Pan-STARRS in the western sky earlier this week, Tuesday night should be another great opportunity to see it. In fact, the comet should be positioned next to the sliver of a crescent moon (which sets at 8:35 p.m.). Its proximity to the moon could make for a beautiful photo opportunity.
Pan-STARRS will be located in the western sky. Catch a glimpse before it dips below the horizon by mid-evening. For the comet to appear brightest, view it in a location away from city lights.
If you aren't able to see the comet tonight, don't worry. The rest of this week promises great viewing, too. However, as the days pass, the comet will continue to move away from the sun and will get steadily more dim. It's best to do your comet gazing earlier than later. It's also a good idea to use binoculars to magnify the comet, as it is relatively faint.
Remember, too, to share any photos you capture of the comet by emailing them to email@example.com.
